"Urban Space, Time to Play" was the title for a workshop program setup by V2 Lab for the eArts Festival “Urbanized Landscape” Shanghai 2008 .

During four worshop days two public interventions were developed by a group of 10 chinese media and design students. After some intense days of discussing, translating and testing the interventions where performed in public space in front of the South Railway Station Shanghai. "Jump'n Run Shanghai" is a physical reenactment of the video game Super Mario and "QQ PaperChat" is a paper based version of the popular chinese chat service QQ. Due to a missing permission these interventions were stopped by the police.
